This is a list, off the top of my head, of 10 totally cheesy (for one reason or another) movies I completely love. It’s great mindless entertainment watching these and I never, repeat, never, get tired of them. You might shake your head at me, wondering about my sanity in picking these gems, but really… I dare YOU not to like them. You don’t have to say it out loud either. You can keep the fact that you like them too to yourself. It’s OK. But, you like them. I know it. And, even if you don’t, watch and make fun. That’s part of the joy of watching these films anyway. The temperatures are going up, so… grab some popcorn, turn up the air conditioning, throw one of these bad boys in, and prepare to be entertained! Say cheese….
Fools Rush In
I don’t know what it is about this movie, but I love it. Whenever this is on, I’ll watch it. Very cheesy, but so good.
I’ve watched this so much I can quote most of the dialogue. It’s such a great, funny, feel good kind of movie. “Worms Roxanne, worms!”
Love at First Bite
This one is so silly it gets me. I laugh through the whole thing. “With you, never a quickie, always a longie.” LOL How can you not laugh?
I think, with this one, it’s his little dancing around thing he does in this movie. This has never gotten anything close to good ratings, but you know, who cares about ratings. To me this is pure cheese ball entertainment.
Mel Brooks at his cool kooky-est. This movie, for anyone who likes Hitchcock films, which I happen to love, is a must see. Too funny.
Probably my favorite movie of all time. Love, action, silliness, good acting, and loads of cheese… all in one film. You might have to watch this one twice.
Fried Green Tomatoes
Women power, storytelling inside the movie, Jessica Tandy, Kathy Bates, and some good writing, once again.
Big Trouble in Little China
How can you not like this movie? I’ve seen it probably a hundred times and I still watch it every chance I get.
Dream a Little Dream
One of those great 80’s movies that, for some reason, I totally love. Maybe it’s because I have a spot in my heart for soft shoe. Nah, it’s probably just because Jason Robards is in it.
The Golden Child
“I want the knife. GIve me the knife. Pllleeeeeaaaasse.” I might have gotten some of that wrong, but it’s the gist of it. This one is so completely corny, and not all that well done, but who cares. I love the little kid in this.
The Lost Boys
I was compiling the list just now and then remembered, when I got all done with it, that I love this movie. Probably one of the cheesiest vampire films of all time, but so totally cool. How can you not love Jason Patric’s angst or the over the top acting of who turns out to be the head vampire. Oh yeah, and Kiefer Sutherland is in it.
Long Kiss Goodnight
And lastly, yet another great movie I forgot to add to the list, hence the addition of this just added bonus feature. Samuel L. Jackson and Geena Davis have some great exchanges in this movie. They keep me laughing. Nothing like the whole, “I’m not talking about the linen”, exchange… it’s funny, and terrific.
